Referring to Grove House Day Services

Referral criteria and process for Rennie Grove’s range of day services available at Grove House and in patients’ homes

Would your patient benefit from our Day Services? 

We provide a range of day services at our beautiful, newly refurbished Grove House in St Albans, Hertfordshire. In addition, some day services are available in the community across our catchment area of Bucks and West Herts.  

All our day services offer support with patients’ overall health and wellbeing. For example, clinics, therapies and courses offer practical and emotional support to help patients live well throughout their illness.  

For full details of the support our day services can provide, please see our day services information page.  

Our day services are open to anyone who has been diagnosed with a life-limiting or potentially life-threatening condition, regardless of prognosis. For example, we can support patients who: 

  • have recently received a diagnosis 
  • are currently receiving treatment 
  • are living with a long-term life-limiting illness 
  • who have been successfully treated but need physical or emotional support to aid with recovery  

Buckinghamshire patients are welcome to use our Grove House day services, but we can also suggest equivalent services closer to home. 

Although patients can self-refer to our day services, we will need to liase with their GP before we can start providing care. For this reason, it is more efficient if their GP or another clinician involved in their care makes the referral.

To refer a patient registered with a GP in Hertfordshire:

All referrals go via a triage centre. Please download and complete a referral form choosing ‘Grove House, Rennie Grove Hospice Care’ as the requested service and attaching any relevant documents.  Contact information for submission can be found on the form.

Please do not refer without the patient’s consent.

Please note we’re unable to provide a complete range of day services to our Buckinghamshire patients.  To discuss what support we can provide for your patient, or to get a recommendation of similar services nearer to the patient’s home, please get in touch with us directly at Grove House on 01727 731000
